    Barring a few notable tracks, this debut from Snaith under the Daphni name, fails to coalesce into anything resembling the creative designs of his previous records.

    It's a job well done.... But a few tracks sound too much like functional mix fodder. [Nov 2012, p.91]

    In totally brushing aside the complexities of Caribou in order to make dance music, he loses sight of the more complex moments in the dance music he's making.

    There's a rhythmic directness here, and a desire to have a good time, that's not exactly absent from Caribou but pulling harder at the leash now.

    Jiaolong speaks in a more comprehensible language because it's not florid psych-pop, but as with Caribou, I do not see a way to become anything other than a spectator of this music.
